The forest-dwelling Stegosaurus was one of the very first dinos to be domesticated by the villagers in our beloved game and is in fact the first dino mentioned in the sacred text Dinosaurs. The stego will also usually be one of the first dinos to set up home in your village, the other early settlers being the Mammoth, Ankylosaurus and the Parasaurolophus. The best way to get one of these four dinos is to buy a random egg from the Dino Den.
Below, we see a Dino-Diorama featuring a family of these well-armored Stegosaurus dinos. The sun has yet to burn through the morning mist, offering this early-rising dino family a rare chance to chomp on dew-covered leaves and to drink the pristine waters of a mountain stream fed by melt water from the snow-covered mountains.

All these dino-dioramas will eventually be housed in the Museum of Dinosaurs, Beasts and Chimera once the renovations there are complete.
